Perennial Toad Lily
These toadally unique perennials should be planted where their ornate flowers can be observed closely. They grow well in shadier gardens and bloom in late summer. 'Samurai' has variegated foliage that pairs nicely with its purple, orchid-like flowers.
Grapes are a fast-growing screen that can create privacy for porches and soften decks. The fruit is an added bonus. Our grape plants are currently 2-3 feet tall trellised in containers, complete with clusters of ripening fruit.
